Winter Solstice

Posted on

To celebrate the shortest day of the year and mostly to welcome in the now growing daylight hours, my family all humored us by coming over for a backyard bonfire. It too me a half hour just to shovel a walkway through the pile of snow out to our fireplace and another hour to get our terrible woodpile to light but a little gasoline did the trick.

During a time of year that I too often find to be marred with consumerism, over-indulgence, and cliches, it was refreshing to spend a night with loved ones in the crisp outdoor air, laughing, eating, and talking- no strings attached. It has been a crazy year for the seven of us and I’m thankful we’re still all here to gather, even in the dead of winter.
